SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Monday the funeral services to be held for Frances J. Monson, the wife of LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson. She passed away Friday.

Funeral services will be held Thursday at noon in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. The public is invited to the funeral service, according to a release on the church's website. There will be no public viewing.
